Not our normal post but we have really received a lot of positive feedback and Google+ invite requests since our original post on the subject.

Here we aim to provide how you can get your Free Account without an invitation (if you already have a Google account, use Gmail, etc).  We also found a nice short video that describes what Google Plus is, what is a Circle and the concept behind and why you should consider creating your own Google Plus account or ask to receive an invite… as stated in our original posting, we been using Google+ since the early days of tetsting and have inviations to send out if you would like an invite and do not already have a Google account.

First – how to setup your Free Google Plus account – if you already have a Google account, use Gmail, etc

  • No invitation necessary
  • Go to https://plus.google.com 
  • Sign in with your account username and password
  • Make sure to create a publicly visible profile

  •  Google+ is not available for Google Apps accounts just yet… sorry
  • Anyone can create a Free Google account which will also grant you access to Gmail, Google Docs, Sites, Calendar, GTalk, Google Voice and many more….but you do NOT need to use any of these in order to setup your Free Google Plus account
